TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad scorned the U.N Security Council’s imposing sanctions on Iran, telling a crowd Tuesday that Iran had humiliated the United States in the past and would do so again.
Speaking in the southwestern provincial capital of Ahvaz, Ahmadinejad said the Security Council’s resolution of December 23 was invalid and had left the world body’s reputation in tatters….
“Let’s the world know that from the Iranian nation’s point of view, this resolution has no validity,” Ahmadinejad said.
He said the United States was the main power behind the resolution, and warned Washington: “I want you to know that the Iranian nation has humiliated you many times, and it will humiliate you in future.”…
“You are nobody,” he told the Western powers. Recalling the West’s support for Iraq, then ruled by Saddam Hussein, during its eight year war with Iran in the 1980s, he said: “If all the powers that supported Saddam in his war against Iran were to regroup and confront Iran again, Iranians would deliver a historic slap in their face”…
“We have tried all legal, wise and logical ways to convince these corrupt and selfish powers,” he said of the West.
